Please Help me to clean my 10.8 install (HP Pavilion DV6)

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

i just buy a laptop, an Hp pavilion dv6 6b41sf.

I made the mountain lion installation without much problems, i use the basic kernel and the real apple installer not a distrib.

I don't have a dsdt because i had one picked on another dv6 but with others components, so i deleted it...

Since the begining some things doesn't work:

 

Wifi (broadcom BCM94313, is in fact 4313)

No sound at all --------working now with a kext

Ethernet----working now with a kext

Second graphic card (the ati one)

And the geekbench score is bad...2200 in 32 bit test (i think there is something wrong)

Another thing, in the system info about my proc L3 cache, it show 768ko, in fact that is 3mo...----working now with a modded kernel.

About the smbios.plist i made a basic one from the macbook pro 8.1

 

I put here my chameleon.plist, and the laptop description...maybe that can be usefull...

 

Thank you all for your help!

Also you will need to extract your DSDT and begin editing it to get everything working properly such as sleep and shutdown etc...

 

Follow my guide here to extract your DSDT:

thanks for the plist!

The sleep already work, i use a kext and i patch the applertc.

But for the dsdt i don't know which patch to use etc...i'm a little lost...i already made a Hackintosh, but that was a more classic hardware, on this one i don't even find a dsdt of someone else with the exact same laptop.

Install this DSDT in your extra folder and then reboot. THen post an IOreg (using the IOreg app) so I can apply other edits.

 

If you can not boot with this DSDT boot with:

 

DSDT=No

 

Note this is case sensitive

The chameleon documentation refers to DSDT=none, rather than DSDT=no.

If one doesn't work, try the other.

Hey veda and HereToHelp :)

 

I have an HP Pavilion DV6-6B55SG.

 

Intel® Core™ i7- 2670QM Prozessor [4x 2,20 GHz]

AMD Radeon HD 6770M [DDR5 2GB] + Intel HD 3000

6GB [DDR3 1333MHz]

1x 500GB HardDisk

 

Your GeekBench score is so bad because your HackBook is only working with 1 core of your CPU ( because of your bootflag "cpus=1").

I know when your starting without cpus=1 you will get a kernel panic.

But there is a patched kernel for Mountain Lion.

So you wont need to start with cpus=1 and your HackBook will work with all of your cores and will get a better score at geekbench.

Try one of these two -> http://www.osx86.net...fix_for_ml.html

 

My Ethernet works out of the box without installing anything.

But this should help you -> http://www.osx86.net...d_mt._lion.html

 

You have the same Wifi Card as me, i have searced a lot and it seems like our card BCM4313 is not supported at all.

But you can try these here:

http://www.osx86.net...es_airport.html

http://www.osx86.net...oadcom_fix.html

 

Tell me please if you get it working and I will tell you if I get it working ;)

 

@veda

Can you explain me in detail how you got your sleep working?

 

@HereToHelp

Can you please help me, too?

My sound is not working and i have only the same information as veda.

On Windows it showed that it is a IDT HD device.

 

This showed me System Info:

kw1s8hr83458.png

 

Mountain Lion detects both of my cards but it seems to use only the onboard one Intel 3000.

Is there any way to tell ML to use my ATI card?

I also added my dsdt.aml which I created following your guide.

 

I hope we can help each other :)

VoodooTSCSync.kext should fix the CPUS=1 issue. I do not recommend using a modded kernel. Also about using the onboard ATI card. If you can turn off the Intel card in the BIOS then you can use it. Other wise you are out of luck. I will look at your DSDT. Could you also post an IOreg.

Should I use the DSDT you posted in the attachment or my own?

 

And in which format should I save the IOreg?

I just have to open the app and the click on File and save as, or?

Cool, I'm happy :)

 

But what now to do?

 

How do I get the sound working, my second Graphiccard AMD Radeon HD 6770M or the BatteryManager

 

Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart :)

For sound do some research on what chipset the sound card is for your laptop.

About using the onboard ATI card. If you can turn off the Intel card in the BIOS then you can use it. Other wise you are out of luck.

 

For the

Battery you need to use the

voodoobattery kext.

 

Also make a SSDT by following my guide here:

Thank you :)

 

Ok I will do some research.

 

For what do I need the SSDT?

Do I have to send it again to your or what is the function of it?

Thanks, in fact i think i found a post of you elsewhere so i put the modded kernel who work great when i put busratio=22.

About the sleep, i thought it worked, but no...it go in sleep and about 2 or 3 seconds later it's awake alone, like that 2 time before stay awake...so it finally doesn't work yet!

 

Anyway, thanks for your advices!

 

Install this DSDT in your extra folder and then reboot. THen post an IOreg (using the IOreg app) so I can apply other edits.

 

If you can not boot with this DSDT boot with:

 

DSDT=No

 

Note this is case sensitive

 

so, i put your dsdt and he boot nice, i give you my ioreg log. About the Ethernet, i found a kext for realtek who make it work.The sleep don't work finally after testing better.

For the sound, i retry the voodoo hda and, it work just in theory, in fact the sound is cradle (broken, "crac cric cric ") in both headphone and speaker...

The probleme is i can't find the name of the sound chip so i have to try almost everything...

Wifi still doen't work and about second graphic card, in the bios i can't disable the first, just change an option to set the card changing to be "smart" or manual (in the os) something like that.

Something else, i have some artifact on my screen, sometime a white line or a scare somewhere, no much but some!

Escuse my bad english by the way^^.

 

Thank for your help.

I try this kext and he's not working for me, again the KP even with busratio=22....

I put back the modded kernel.
